Is it me or does the trap shot seem completely useless?

Not useless per se, but all traps should have been this way to begin with. They're just re-giving us Freezing Trap at the moment.

It shouldn't seem useless to someone who does a lot of trapping.Try trapping a ranged attacker or a caster with the traditional freezing trap... then try it when you can plant the trap right at the mob's feet and you'll see why this is good.

"Try trapping a ranged attacker or a caster with the traditional freezing trap... then try it when you can plant the trap right at the mob's feet and you'll see why this is good."potentially useful (at least when there is no way to LOS them and/or you don't have silencing shot for the caster), but really, try chain trapping anybody with freezing arrow. believe me, the regular freezing trap works at least as well for directing your trap mobs. and in PvP, freezing arrow is currently way less reliable than scatter-trapping, which is a crying shame. In all honesty, the only time I expect to use freezing arrow is to help take the heat off of a healer who has pulled aggro. This skill is by far one of the worst things they have done to hunters in wrath. I do admit, though, when they first put it in, I was amused to actually try shooting it at a body of water and saw the trap just float on top of the ocean.

I think plant trapping is actually more useful just based on cooldowns, seeing as the further away you have the target the longer you have your cooldown ticking away, shortening the distance between the break and the next trap. Allowing for more effective pre-laying, and the bonus is compounded with concussive shot on that target just to get the most out of it.Anyway, we all know that we have too many binds as it is, that is one shot that will probably not occupy my bars because it seems far too situational, at least for pve.Freezing shot, good for:A caster who isn't first target on dps, with no LoS or space to run back.
